Faith Based Initiative

The Faith Based Initiative is a conference designed to equip professionals and volunteers in local councils and congregations to reach their shared goals of reaching young families and building sustainable membership. Among the topics to be covered are: religious emblems as a linchpin for faith based organizations and Scouting; ScoutParents as a tool for engaging families; enhancing communication between faith based organizations and Scouting; and organizing sustainable units which positively impact participants, their families, the congregation and the council. Participants will return home with specific action plans for helping grow the council and the congregation as well as fulfilling key elements of the Journey to Excellence.
